Never Too Spoiled

The pretty leaf earrings I'm wearing were purchased at a Philadelphia store called "Never Too Spoiled".  These words were on a store display:  "When you buy something made by a person, there is something special and you do feel it.  The consciousness with which a thing is made is often more important than the thing itself".

I used Gabrielle Pollacco's resist stamp technique around my border.  Photo by Bob taken yesterday at Morgantown's City Reservoir.

Here is photo of the display in the Philadelphia Store "Never Too Spoiled".  It is a beautiful store. . . even the dressing areas are pretty and unique.
